There are 200 million Christians living in areas where persecution is severe and another 400 million living in areas where they are at risk.  The loss of freedom violates the UN Charter of Human Rights and in some countries, occurs with official complicity, in violation of rights established in their national constitution.

Christian Faith and Freedom (CFF) is an interdenominational human rights organization, a member of the Australian Coalition for the Persecuted Church.

Christian Faith And Freedom does not discriminate between Christians of different denominations or traditions. Instead, we recognise all who worship Jesus as Lord and Saviour as the “Body of Christ” (1 Corinthians 12) in the world today. We aim to assist those who suffer at the hands of oppressive governments, communities and individuals because of this allegiance to Christ.   

Please Come and join us in praying for persecuted Christian Churches, brothers and sisters throughout the nations.

It is Vital that we Continue to PRAY in Unity for Australia & the Nations. 

Persecuted Church PRAYER Update Easter Devotion (1) 

PRAYER FUEL: FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE 

‘Behold,’ declares the LORD, idols are useless; they cannot speak or guide you in the right direction. Likewise idolaters, have no answers: ‘Behold, they are all a delusion …’ (from Isaiah 41:21-29). On the other hand … ‘Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations … he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth … I will make [my servant] as a light for the nations that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.’ (excerpts from Isaiah 42:1-4 , 49:5-7 ESV). 

Unlike the Judeans, who made idols of wood and metal, modern humanity makes idols of money, political systems, and humanity itself. In these, men and women put their faith and hopes. But like the idols of old, today’s idols are useless and without answers - ‘they are all a delusion’. On the other hand, God’s servant – the Lord Jesus Christ – does speak truth, has sovereign power and will bring forth justice; that is, he will establish God’s truth in the earth; he will put things right. Furthermore, because God has made him as a light for the world – a light which ‘darkness has not overcome’ (John 1:4-5) – salvation will reach to the ends of the earth! 

Today, as we approach Easter under the shadow of plague, pandemic and persecution, let us remember: Jesus, God’s servant, was obedient unto death. Consequently, the nations will see justice and salvation will extend to the ends of the earth. God has ordained it, Christ has secured it and now the Spirit is faithfully bringing it to pass. Nothing can get in the way of God’s will – not plague, not pandemic and not persecution. And so, dear intercessor, our hope is not diminished! So pray in faith, with the energy that comes from hope and the passion that comes from love for the Church, for the world and for our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
